    Taylor is out for good. He was actually never a choice, just a rumor.

    @bawnian-dexeus You raise an extraordinary point. At least Liam is fun to watch on screen. "I need a horse!"

    I am ok with Hemsworth but this movie is getting polluted with actors. I love action films but if you get to know each character you care more about if they survive. Too many actors and you end up with expensive window dressing.

    @moviefreak97 agreed. i dont think its fare to judge him based off of that miley cyrus movie

    Just be happy it aint Lautner. Besides, Chris Hemsworth is a great actor so maybe some of his acting chops rubbed off onto Liam. I have never seen him act so I can't judge him but I have a feeling that he might be good.

    @pjwolsker@bawnian-dexeus Yep, better him than Lautner. I'll judge Hemsworth after I see The Hunger Games. If he's anything like his brother, it should be good.

    SOME ARE REALLY EXPENDABLE- Meh, Van Damme and Norris couldn't give this franchise justice, I think. Neither could Wahlberg or Lautner. I think that Liam Hemsworth will be a great addition or a few other actors. What happened to Christopher Lambert? I wanted to see him in this! Some characters work and others are expendable!

    @seawolf63 michael biehn said no cause Stallone basically said in an interview that biehn doesnt have a career anymore and he wants to give him a chance.. biehn was basically insulted by that so he said no

  17. Seawolf63

    @bawnian-dexeus Agreed... with a slight sigh of relief... now they need to get Kurt Russel and Micheal Biehn on board.

    If they wanted a sniper, they should of got Mark Wahlberg, hes good at it in shooter...
